This means it takes us a little longer to get the garment to you, but makes it all the more special when you receive it.
The illustration on this Sweatshirt is inspired by a trip to the serene Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar. It started as a sketch of the twin Chindith Temple Guardians that stand resolutely outside every Buddhist pagoda. They protect the temple and visitors from evil spirits. Also, the name ‘Chindits’ references the Allied soldiers that fought the Japanese in Burma during WW2, borrowing their name and emblem from these serene but scary Buddhist Temple Guardians. Every time I have gone to Burma/Myanmar I have always been fascinated and drawn to the Chindith. Hopefully when you wear this garment you may gain some protection from wearing it or at least look great trying.
